Born on February 3rd, 1991, in Des Moines, he was the feisty, little three pound baby (and only child) of Michael and Donna (Schneider) Varnum. He grew up in State Center- many days on the skate park- and graduated from the West Marshall High School in 2009. He then attended MCC.
For many years, he was a semi-pro skateboarder and mentored to others younger. He was a lifeguard and professional drummer acquiring music friends all over the world. Wyatt had a soft heart for other people- always willing to help them.
He is survived by his parents Michael and Donna and his faithful furry companion, Gizzy, and other family members.
In death, he rejoined grandma and grandpa Schneider and grandpa and grandma Varnum.
Wyatt- your mom says “Play your drums for God. We love you.”
